Reader photos of the Tuesday morning crash

A two-car accident in front of Mahwah Ford Tuesday morning resulted in a minor fuel spill and some minor injuries, Police Chief Jim Batelli confirmed.

A Suffern woman suffered “minor chest injuries believed to be caused by [her] vehicle’s air bag deployment,” when her car collided with another on Franklin Turnpike, Batelli said. She was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital, he said.

The gas tank in the other car, being driven by a Bergenfield man, “ruptured” as a result of the accident, causing an “extremely small gas spill,” Batelli said.

According to Mahwah Assistant Fire Chief Brad Stio, Mahwah Fire Companies 1 and 2 responded to the scene and cleaned the spill.

The photos above were submitted by Mahwah residents.

Every time I come on this site and see Mayor Laforet's ads I swear I will never come back to this site....Promises kept? AKA outsource all of the towns services? Unreal

Ironic - so you're not keeping the promises you make to yourself - every time?
